With the mural blocked in, today I began with some glazing and ragging to imitate stone. The trickiest bit is blending large areas of one color into another. Acrylic and latex tend to dry too fast to blend wet into wet . I don’t use extenders. I just paint quickly!
Paper stencils worked beautifully to create the pictographs and some changes in scale to the palace and signal tower helped to add depth and interest.
